"A Great Day for Good Teachers"
Original post made by Nomad, Another Pleasanton neighborhood, on Aug 7, 2012
It is worth noting that the sponsor of the legislation is (D) State Sen. Teresa Ruiz who said "But we can’t sit back and do nothing." And note the Senate President Stephen Sweeney (D) said "We can’t have the bad ones in the schools anymore, one bad teacher is one bad teacher too many."
More details are in the Wall Street Journal here (Web Link).
Before anyone thinks about supporting either of the two multi-billion dollar tax hike initiatives this November that purport to support CA schools, ask yourself what really is going to improve the schools......more money for a failing system.....or reform that will increase the quality of the teachers?
Maybe if Governor Brown, the Democrat dominated CA Legislature, and the teachers unions would focus on improving education first, they would garner fiscal support from the citizens. As it stands now, doing what is right for our students seems farthest from their minds.
